Gallagher - Insurance and Risk Management Services

As announced by the Scottish Sports Association (SSA) on 14 th February, Gallagher is delighted to be
the SSA’s Preferred Insurance Partner.

SSA members face a number of insurance challenges around coverage, administration and pricing. Gallagher's appointment came because the SSA values the Gallagher team's ability to rise to these challenges, and to offer the Association and its members bespoke insurance solutions.

Why Gallagher?

Gallagher provides trusted risk management, consultancy and insurance to clubs, associations and major sports franchises. It is one of the largest insurance brokers in the world, with a 90-year heritage, and yet  remains run by the Gallagher family and works with organisations of all sizes.

Indeed, the company has a long history of working with sports clubs and associations, including Sport England, Scottish Hockey, The Football Association, Royal Yacht Association, and Scottish Archery. Gallagher manages the insurance interests of a number of individual sports teams and societies, and are the Official Title Partner of Premiership Rugby and the Special Olympics. Gallagher has the knowledge and understanding to help SSA members and the individual clubs affiliated to SSA members.

Gallagher’s commitment and professionalism are backed by a passion and enthusiasm for Scottish sport and a desire to support governing bodies and clubs through their expertise and insight.

What will Gallagher bring to the SSA and its members?

Gallagher’s task over the next five years and beyond, will be to bring the insurances of Scottish sports together as much as possible in order to realise overall buying power and economies of scale that will benefit Scottish sport. Gallagher will work closely with the SSA to:

  • provide broad cover and risk management advice to help prevent, minimise and defend claims;
  • reduce overall spend on insurance and resources, saving members time by having standard operating procedures in place, enabling governing bodies of sport and their clubs to invest savings made back into sport;
  • free members up to do what they do best, which is to deliver both an inclusive and welcoming participation-led approach across all sports and a competitive sports environment.

The Gallagher team look forward to working in partnership with the SSA as we collaboratively develop an insurance proposition that is tailored to the specific needs of the Scottish Sports Association and its members.
